A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This may be a whole site or just one page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username and also a password. In case you type the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything additional. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you'll see a note that you are not allowed to view the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is very practical if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
